Dickmania returning to Denver soon

Corey Dickerson may be returning to the Colorado Rockies very soon, after hitting a home run and a double and playing seven full innings for AAA Albuquerque on Saturday night in Sacramento against the Giants’ AAA affiliate River Cats.

Dickerson is recovering from a broken rib he sustained while diving for a ball several months ago, which is the second significant injury he’s had this year. He missed time with the Colorado Rockies earlier this year after suffering through plantar fasciitis in his foot.

It’s been a completely lost season for Dickerson due to injuries, but getting right and getting some more big league at-bats in the last several weeks of the year before coming into 2016 strong would greatly benefit him, and the team.

And, in a weird way, it’s likely a good thing that Dickerson missed time with the rib injury, if only for the fact that it kept him off his feet to allow his heel to recover more fully than if he had been pushing it hard to return earlier this year.
